Yes, it's my birthday again!

Yes, how fast the time flies, and before I knew it, I am going to be a hundred years old soon....
But let me tell you what I did on my birthday.


                    I danced alone in my my living room:) My husband is on board the ship again!


Had more than one hundred visitors not at home, but in Facebook who greeted me on my birthday!


I ate leftovers food from yesterday.

Am I happy? 
Am I contented?

Well, actually I am happy because I know although that I celebrated my birthday with myself and myself, I am contented because I know that I am loved by God and many and that was really enough for me. 

Oh, by the way, my youngest daughter came by and brought me this:


Well, the day before, I invited my mother-in-law, my youngest daughter, my sister and her husband to dinner. 

I prepared fried chicken, kaldereta and salad

Rice was  in the menu too:)


I made gelatin for dessert, but we were not lucky when we tried to put it on serving plate. So, no picture of it. Anyway, it did taste good.

I baked chocolate cake and served it with  coffee. But since it was too big for us 5 people, I brought the rest at work and served to the elderly. They were so thankful and happy for the cake.


So, now I am 52 years old. I am happy and thankful for all the blessings God has given me.

Thanks for all the greetings. Love you all!

JOY
